For the Germans this will mean not, only a great supply of a food winch they heavily consume even Pull the Trigger on Lazy Bowels with herfa lnativt,c«mbined with syrup pepcin to make it agreMbta and easy to take When constipation brings on acid indigestion, bloating, dizzy spells, gas, coated tongxie, sour taste and bad breath, your stomach is probably "crying the blues" because your bowels don't move. It calls for Laxative Senna to pull the trigger on those lazy bowels, combined with good old Syrup Pepsin to make your laxative more agreeable and easier to take. For years many Doctors have used pepsin compounds, as agreeable carriers to make other medicines more palatable when your "taster" feels easily upset. 'So be sure your laxative contains Syrup Pepsin. Insist on Dr. Caldwell's "Laxative Senna, combined with Syrup Pepsin. See how wonderfully its herb Laxative Senna wakes up Jazy nerves and muscles in your intestines, to bring welcome relief from constipation. And see how its Syrup Pepsin makes Dr. Cald well's medicine so smooth and agreeable to a touchy gullet. Even finicky children love the taste of this pleasant family laxative. Buy Dr. Caldwell'.s Laxative Senna at your druggist's today. Try one laxative that won't bring on violent distaste, even when you take it after a full meal. , in peace times, but also an opportunity, through chemical processes, to make starches. ' For Britain the record crop will mean a big saving in importation of food. For Uncle Sam the crop means some quick adjustments will have to be made to obtain fullest economic advantage of the great spud year. The usual export market is largely cut off by the war and America finds itself with a crop of about 393,931,999 bushels, according to the November estimate of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. This compares with 364,016,000 for 1939 and 366,949,000 for the 1929-1938 average. The U. S. Surplus Marketing Administration has already taken advantage of this surplus by not only buying potatoes for direct relief distribution to the-needy, but also by listing potatoes as one of the surplus crops which can be purchased under the food stamp plans. GOVERNMENT BATTLES SURPLUS I A great many potatoes probably will _ be absorbed in the making oi' vegetable starches, seme of which America formerly largely imported. The newly organized system of regional research laboratories has included potatoes on its study list. Two of the four research laboratories of the U, S. Bureau of Agri- qHtural Chemistry and Engineering are giving attention to the industrial utilization of white potatoes. They are Western Regional Research Laboratory under Dr. T. L. Swenson in Albany. Calif., and the Eastern Regional Research Laboratory under Dr. P. A. Wells in Philadelphia. The Southern Research Laboratory in New Orleans is investigating possible industrial ; utilization of the sweep potato, j A program of the U. S.

All right, we'll tell you. Most people would be willing to spend a Uttie extra for what Buick has to offer— style, size, room, steadiness, durability— if part oi that extra could be paid back through lower operating costs. ' Especially they would like really satisfying performance — quick takc-oflV easy hill- climbing, sure power, fast response — if they could have it in a car that's stingy with gasoline. That's what we've given them— through the extra power in this 1941 Buick. The added wallop of FIREBALL engine design and Compound Carburet?on lets us use more thrifty gear ratios, saving money without complicating extra gears or mechanisms. And the tremendous reserve-power in these Buick engines—at 40, for instance, you have as much as 85% of your power "on call" —still permits the flashing getaway, the swooping hill-climb, the sure lift out of pinches you once had to buy with heavy gasoline consumption. So we say—more power to thrift—it helps put Buick thrill and comfort within easy reach. And the reason is—more thrift from power —from abler engines. It all adds up to the sensation of the year— the car you ought to sec first—the brilliant, able beauty your Buick dealer has waiting for you. BUICK PRICES BEGIN AT for the .
